Klocko et al. (2015) explored the extent to which four stressors related to writing might contribute to doctoral students’ anxiety: (1) doctoral-level writing dispositions, (2) researcher view of writing, (3) emotional response to feedback and critique, and (4) writing efficacy.
This is an example of scholarly writing. Transitioning from a practitioner way of writing—e.g., reports, case histories, referrals—to scholarly writing can be challenging. In part, the mindset of being a practitioner is different from that of the mindset of a scholar. Furthermore, scholarly writing involves more scrutiny. Think about peer-reviewed journal articles. They have been evaluated and scrutinized heavily by other scholars before they are published. This may seem daunting and intimidating. Or, as Klocko et al. say above, receiving feedback and critique can provoke feelings of inadequacy and anxiety.
The characteristics of scholarly writing are not a mystery, however. They can be identified, analyzed, and known. Knowing what is expected and adapting your behavior accordingly can be another way to relieve anxiety. In this Discussion, you analyze the characteristics of scholarly writing.

Researchers have studied and written about the topic of spirituality extensively. In social work, spirituality is a crucial factor Essay
Researchers have studied and written about the topic of spirituality extensively. In social work, spirituality is a crucial factor to consider when working with clients, families, communities, and organizations. In their article, Hodge and Derezotes (2008) take a topic—spirituality—and analyze how spirituality is conceptualized and studied from an empiricist (logical positivist) perspective and how it contrasts with a postmodernist perspective. Similarly, in this Discussion, you put on a postmodernist lens to see how your potential doctoral capstone topic will look. Remember that the ontological, axiological, and epistemological assumptions you hold will then influence how you go about studying the topic.
Review the following resources from your Learning Resources this week:
The article, “Postmodernism and Spirituality: Some Pedagogical Implications for Teaching Content on Spirituality” from the Journal of Social Work Education.
Chapter 5, “Feminist Theory” from the text Contemporary Human Behavior Theory: A Critical Perspective for Social Work.
ASC success strategies: Microsoft Office: Microsoft PowerPoint from the Walden Academic Skills Center.
Review the remaining required resources from your Learning Resources this week, and cite at least one additional resource in your posts.
